    Greetings

    I am wondering if there is a DVD player out there that has a specific auto repeat function button on it for the purpose of auto repeat play. I am aware that most players have this function built in their menus whereby one sets the in and out points on a DVD then activates the auto repeat function on the menu and bingo - you have auto repeat. Now this works fine in the home or in a situation where the DVD operator knows how to go into menus and set in and out points. The problem arises however when there is a power failure or the power is accidentally switched off and the DVD player loses its auto repeat memory settings. I run a business whereby I have many TV/VCR combos playing advertising material on auto repeat at different venues in different towns. As mentioned earlier the problem I'm having is when there is a power interuption (for whatever reason) and the player loses it's settings. Now fortunately this isn't too bad with the TV/VCR combo's as resetting isn't too dificult to do by the people in the offices where my sets are playing. Presently I am seriously thinking of outputting my advertising material onto DVD and using the same concept but the auto repeat function found on most DVD players would prove unsatisfactory. If there was a dedicated auto repeat switch on the DVD player, then even if there was a power failure, all that would be necessary by the person in the office would be to press play on the remote without having to get involved with internal menus and setting in and out points which can be confusing to a DVD owner let alone a layperson working in an office with little or no DVD experience.

    I would appreciate any input or advice from anyone regarding this and even would appreciate suggestions where to go on other DVD sites where help could perhaps be given.

    Many thanks

    Regards

    I am moving this to the DVD Hardware forum as you are more likely to get the answer you are looking for there...

    Burn your own DVDs with the sections you want on them. Set them to auto play without going into menus and repeat for ever.

    Computer software that I could successfully make a DVD to repeat:



    Nero Vision (Not just any Nero, I tried "Nero Vision") (WWW.NERO.COM. My project was done with FULL VERSION, so, I am NOT SURE if the TRIAL VERSION can work or not.

    or, you can try a software that also worked:

    DVDFAB (at WWW.DVDFAB.COM, TRIAL VERSION works FULLY LIKE BOUGHT VERSION, for 3 copies, you can try it today.)



    (2 years ago, my project was done successfully with the help from either of those 2 software.

    My idea was to make an Educational DVD for my 3-year-old to watch at the house of the baby sitter. Within 2 hours, with me actually spending just 5 minutes for clicking on the computer, I could successfully create a NEW DVD that my old aunt could just put inside the DVD and the DVD will play forever until she stops it. That helped my kids in learning with the educational DVD (like learning ABC or Basic Math) over and over and over again.



    I wish I remember the exact step for you. Sorry, I don't.



    I hope this helps you because I tried over 15 software out there to narrow down to these 2 software.

    If you like, you can ask the Software Seller to give you the steps.



    I know their products work for this MAKING A "REPEATING DVD". They know their products. Together, the world will be a better place.

    Good luck...
